A member of the Royal Canadian Air Force who’s facing drug and firearm offences says he intends to fight what he calls “bogus” charges.
Nicholas Burrell, 28, says he believes he was unfairly targeted for using medical marijuana to treat his mental health issues.
“The way it was worded made it seem that I was running around with a gun and selling weed,” Burrell said about the Canadian Forces news release sent to media on Tuesday.
“What they don’t say is that I am a mental health patient awaiting a medical release for mental health issues and I have a valid prescription for medical marijuana.”
